"It would be weird if the board wasn't discussing if I was the right guy for the job," says Groupon (GRPN +2.1%) founder/CEO Andrew Mason at a BI conference, in response to the inevitable question about a report his board is thinking of sacking him. Nonetheless, Mason insists he's the right guy. He also praised the performance of Groupon Goods, which has bolstered sales but hurt margins, while promising the e-commerce platform will never expand into fulfillment and shipping a la Amazon.
